caused flood damage to her home in the process. it is estimated that nearly 1 million gallons of water had been released before crews could isolate and shut down the 14 inch main break. osting says she has lived in her home for 20 years and has never had any flooding problems but it may be up to her to pay for the damage. "lady from the city told me to call service master and get them here to clean it up and then she came back in and said the city isn't necessarily going to pay... they consider it as an act of god." "sometimes it's just temp change, ground movement usually real wet or real dry creates problems for us..." the citys risk manager will look into the ostings damage later today. lawmakers are split over a bill meant to better protect high school athletes. the bill would require an athletic trainer on site at every varsity level sporting event to help diagnose and treat a student who suffers a head injury. current rules say
